The Problem

With Change Comes Resistance. Remove The Resistance.

Why Bother With Strategic Acceleration?

When the corporate strategy changes, Sr. Management starts working in the new direction but managers and employees work in the old direction. Employees don’t understand ‘what’ the new strategy is, ‘why’ there’s a new strategy, and ‘how’ they fit into the change.

Real Life Case Studies

Publicly Traded Software Company

The Problem: The company develops enterprise software that is sold through a worldwide network of VARs. The company was preparing to launch its cloud offering, but encountered substantial resistance from the VAR community.

The Challenge: After failing to sell the idea to the VARs, the company wanted the VAR owners to experience the advantages of the cloud solution prior to the launch. Buy-in from the VARs was critical.

The Solution: In-person business-simulation workshops enabled the VAR owners to experience firsthand the advantages of the new business model, in addition to the competitive risks if the VARs resisted the cloud solution. After a one-day group simulation experience, the participants understood the why and the how of strategic change.

The results:
Acceptance of the cloud offering among VARs increased by 78%.

Equipment Manufacturer

The Problem: An entirely new executive team was put in place. With the changes came new strategies and new metrics. New changes measuring financial success created uncertainty, resulting in slow adoption.

The Challenge: The executive team decided managers needed a hands-on experience to learn the what, why, and how of the new strategy.

The Solution: Utilizing simulation-based workshops in more than ten countries, managers had the ability to run the company at a high level. Managers could live a day as the CEO in order to understand the reasons behind the changes. Best of all, the executive team was engaged in working hands-on with the global management team. 

The Results: Participant adoption rate went from 12% to 89% in less than a year.
